“We work almost exclusively on orders, 35 hours a week in two seven-hour shifts, and for each order, our design office details each platform according to the customer’s requirements. Our organization allows us to respond to orders within 48 hours in the field, and throughout Europe. At the customer’s site, each product and shelving assembly team works in close collaboration with ManOrga,” explains David Duhamel, head of Industrial Engineering.
The raw material, of which the permanent stock represents several hundred tons, is supplied in the form of coils (metal coils from cold rolling).
To create its products, the company has more than 400 machines, including 11 profiling lines that unwind, straighten, punch, shape and shear the strips of sheet metal in order to create different profiles: posts, shelves, bottoms, ladders, rails, etc., at a rate of 12km of steel transformed daily and 800m² of platforms created each day.
Although the maximum thickness of the profiles is four millimetres, thicker accessory components (up to 15mm) are also required for the platforms and metal shelving.
After the profiling of the profiles, several welding operations are necessary to complete each component.
